Infinite Crisis #5
You know you wish you were a comic book geek like me. Well, maybe not. Wednesday was new comic day so I went to pick up my stash. I've been trying out some new Vertigo books and Grant Morrison's Seven Soldiers books is pretty awesome, but DC's Infinite Crisis mini-series is pure superhero action on all levels. Here's what I said about the first issue.
Issue #5 hit stands this week, and if you think I'm going to recap, you're ass out. Get a history lesson, and THEN get yer recap. But here's what happened in #5: Old-school/1940's Superman goes apeshit when his Lois dies and he goes all Doomsday on our current Superman and Wonder Woman. Batman gathers heroes to track down a killer satellite (that he created, what a dick). Meanwhile, hundreds of Earths are popping up in the galaxy and colliding into each other all because the demented son of Earth-3's Lex Luthor wants to find the perfect Earth. And Nightwing and the current Superboy try to gather heroes for a final assault to save the planet...only nobody bothers to show up. Finally, the sacrifice of the Flashes last issue was in vain because the very insane Superboy-Prime has returned and is ready to literally rip more people's heads off (and probably finish off the rest of the Teen Titans and Outsiders he didn't kill last time).
